Thanks for sharing knowledgeable information,
creator, inventor, originator are the synonyms of each other?


Yes, in a certain sense, they are all synonyms. But when using different synonyms to express different ideas or entities, you have to be careful.

You cannot simply change one synonym for another, without any consideration. You must consider each synonym within the context of the sentence. Sometimes a different synonym fits, other times it does NOT fit -- depending on the context and the nuance.


Thank you so much for clarifying.

The "ee" suffixe has always cheated me! I have to think 3 times before to use it. Especially employer-employee, trainer-trainee, interviewer-interviewee


Hmm, for any native speaker, the distinction is clear. That's probably because we all know the "ER" suffix so well. Teacher, driver, seller, buyer, recorder, producer, runner, jumper, etc. So when we hear the "EE" suffix, we know it's the opposite.

For instance, we might joke that instead of being the "killer," Mr X is the "killee." ☺ Even though that word is not a word and is just nonsense, it makes complete sense, and we can all understand it.

Hope this helps you learn it.
